Cancer Prevention & Control Program
“Personalized Cancer Genomics”
Friday, January 13
10 a.m. – 11:30 a.m.
Discovery 1 | Rm. 140
915 Greene Street
Dr. Phillip Buckhaults is an Associate Professor in the Department of Drug Discovery
and Biomedical Sciences in the School of Pharmacy at the University of South Carolina.
He earned his doctorate in Philosophy in Biochemistry from the University of Georgia.
He also served as a Postdoctoral Fellow in Molecular Genetics at the Johns Hopkins
Oncology Center.. His research focuses on determining biochemical mechanisms by which
germline variants contribute to cancer health disparities that exist between people
of different ethnic ancestries, and uses genome sequencing and functional genomics
to develop novel personalized medicine approaches to treat cancer.
This presentation is part of the Cancer Prevention and Control Program Colloquium Series. The Colloquium Series is held on the 2nd Friday of the month from 10-11:30 am in Room 140 in Discovery I (915 Greene Street, First Floor). Please note that some dates may be adjusted due to competing activities. The Colloquium Series is open to all USC faculty, staff, and students as well as interested research partners.
About the Cancer Prevention and Control Program Colloquium Series
The Cancer Prevention and Control Program at the University of South Carolina thrives on the interdisciplinary of researchers, staff, students, and collaborators to foster a research environment conducive to conceptualizing, developing, and implementing innovative and impactful research and programmatic activities to address cancer disparities in South Carolina and beyond. In 2012, we initiated the Colloquium Series to serve as a venue to further interdisciplinary exchanges and the promulgation of novel research ideas. The ultimate goal of the Colloquium Series is to enhance our research relationships and promote collaborative efforts building on existing research programs and expanding to encompass new directions. The Colloquium Series features Cancer Prevention and Control Program and other cancer researchers across campus, as well as research partners, sharing their research programs and inviting discussion about opportunities for collaboration. The Colloquium Series is open to anyone who wants to present his/her cancer research ideas and receive constructive feedback. The Colloquium Series includes researchers with a variety of cancer research interests and experiences across the research continuum – from bench to bedside to populations. The topics presented may be cancer type specific, methodological, community-engaged, formative, as well as other conceptualizations of cancer research. The Colloquium Series is an ideal setting for researchers at all levels to interact. The 90-minute format includes a presentation of about 45 minutes by a cancer researcher followed by 45 minutes of discussion. The presentations are informal in that questions may be asked throughout the presentation for clarification or additional information. We believe that engaging in collegial discussions will strengthen our approaches to cancer research and allow us to accomplish more together.
